Dogs in the North : Stories of Cooperation and Co-Domestication Hardback

Edited by Robert Wishart, Robert Losey, Jan Peter Laurens Loovers

Part of the Arctic Worlds series


Dogs in the North offers an interdisciplinary in-depth consideration of the multiple roles that dogs have played in the North.

Spanning the deep history of humans and dogs in the North, the volume examines a variety of contexts in North America and Eurasia.

The case studies build on archaeological, ethnohistorical, ethnographic, and anthropological research to illuminate the diversity and similarities in canine-human relationships across this vast region.

The book sheds additional light on how dogs figure in the story of domestication, and how they have participated in partnerships with people across time.

With contributions from a wide selection of authors, Dogs in the North is aimed at students and scholars of anthropology, archaeology, and history, as well as all those with interests in human-animal studies and northern societies.
